Gas Pump Epiphany: Toronto Real Estate Market Refuses To Stall

According to the Compact Oxford English Dictionary, an epiphany can be "a moment of sudden and great revelation". I LOVE the word. I love the idea that sudden, profound insight into the essence or meaning of some "something" can be triggered by unremarkable events and experiences. Or everday life, as it's known.

Really, who hasn't had one or two epiphanies in the course of a lifetime? These moments of revelation can inspire us to take action immediately ("I Quit!", "It's Over!", "I'm Doing This!"). Or at least to realize, at last, that changes have to be made soonest in some aspect of our lives. Major or minor.

Lauren~ Great article.  I didn't realize until the end that you wrote it yourself!  You are absolutely correct in the fact that people will no longer have the luxury of "commuting" to work.  Most will need to live very close to their jobs, or better yet, work out of their homes!

Vickie:

I'm glad you enjoyed the article. When gas was cheap, it was a bit easier to rationalize a brutal commute. Today, people are starting to re-think what they're prepared to sacrifice for larger homes. Especially when it's anyone's guess as to where the price of gas will be next week/year.
